Photographer's Note

Lough Hyne is a semi-enclosed marine lake situated about 5 km west of Skibereen and some 90 km from Cork City in Southwest Ireland.
It is believed that the Lough was a freshwater lake up to 4000 years ago, when a rise in sea levels joined it with the sea.
It is now a highly sheltered, seawater basin connected to the North Atlantic Ocean via a narrow inlet called Barloge Creek.
